Mulayam Singh Yadav, along with UP CM Akhilesh Yadav and Shivpal Yadav, sought to drive home a message of unity within the Samajwadi Party by flagging off Akhilesh's Vikas Rath Yatra in Lucknow on Thursday
The yatra which started off with a clash amongst the party workers, took a rather comic turn when the hi-tech Mercedes bus decked up for the yatra broke down after merely one kilometer into the journey.
This incident tickled the funny bones of the twitterati, and here are some of the reactions.
